How to use CEFALY?

More than 95% of users find CEFALY very easy to use.

Just press one button and the session starts automatically.
In practice, a CEFALY session involves 6 stages:


Clean Your Skin

  • It is important to cleanse your skin before every CEFALY DUAL session. This will help ensure the electrode attaches securely to your forehead.
  • Use soap and water to wash between and above your eyebrows. Afterward, be sure to dry your skin thoroughly.
  • The use of makeup-removing products is NOT recommended as a substitute for soap and water.

Cleansing the skin


Open the Electrode

  • Open the electrode packet and slide out the plastic sleeve and peel the electrode from the clear plastic sleeve.
  • Save both the packet and sleeve for later use and storage of your electrode

Placing the electrode


Position the Electrode on Your Skin

  • Use a mirror to place the electrode on your forehead with the pointed edge down and in line with the bottom of your forehead.
  • Once in place, run your fingers along the electrode several times to check that it’s flat and firm against your skin.
